Pollantir question

Pollantir question Can't Post

In polls allowing multiple answers, the precentage numbers are misleading. For instance in this poll it is eminently silly to give both The Hobbit and all three of The Lord of the Rings volumes only 4%. Four precent of what?
I suppose every single person who responded to that thread has read all four, so the precentages for each book should be out of fourteen (at the point I last looked at it).

Could this be changed - preferably for all polls which allow multiple answers?

"Throughout The Hobbit our accomplished author often ignores the basic convention of writing to "show, not tell." Is the age of his audience the reason? The age of his sources?"

If the poll originator wants the post changed, [In reply to] Can't Post

an admin will change it. If he doesn't, we'll leave it as-is.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.
